Arise

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Water
Drops from the sky
Yearning to reach the sea
It’s path always heading downwards
Tumbling

Humans
Are not water
Humans yearn for the sky
They strive and climb up and up
Struggling

Sliding
Down from the heights
Steps faltering and weak
Bringing us down into the deep
Failing

Thinking
Measure the path
Assaying obstacles
Planning with forethought and wisdom
Reason

Rising
Against the rain
Climbing the steep ascent
Aiming for the sky, for the stars!
Soaring

When the White Wolf Walks

By Scott Bailey © 2016

When the white wolf walks
Hunting in silver moonlight
The red deer shivers

In response to my daily prompt Walk

Desert Dancers

By Scott Bailey © 2014

In a growing desert on flowing sands
Sinking down into dried oasis
A market thrives
Rich men and women trade
Food for souls
Hot air for agreement
And everyone dances
While the sands sink
Everyone laughs and sings
